My friend and i are planning a trip through Asia, we have tickets to India for November 28th! I have a few, perhaps Naive sounding, questions that may well have been answered previously on the HUBB but please bare with us and any help/advise would be greatly recieved especially from those who have trecked this region previously.
The countries we plan to visit are India,Nepal, Bangladesh, Bhutan, China (avoiding Burma), then south through Vietnam, Cambodia, Laos, Thailand and Malaysia
....perhaps onwards as we have no specific plan, just get on the bikes and ride. The most important question is regarding border crossings, we have a Visa for India and Nepal and plan on getting Visas for the other coutries en route, will we find any major dramas/do we need to plan well in advance for certain countries, i.e. Vietnam.
We plan to buy a Royal Enfield, preferably a 500cc, but a 350 would suffice, in New Delhi, does anyone know of anywhere to look and a rough price so we dont get ripped off, or if anyone has one to sell that has reached the end of their own journey? we're looking around $1000 each. And one final question....is anyone going to be in the area and fancies meeting up for several sunny beverages? Be great to hear fom you guys, and hope to see some of you soon, Cheers!
P.S. feel free to throw in any 2cents worth that two naive wannabes may have forgotten, we have Jabs, Insurance, Intervational driving license and im pouring over the HUBB for anything else we may need with just over a month left!
